SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Silicon Solution, Inc. (Nasdaq: ISSI) today provided preliminary financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2010. During the quarter, the Company experienced weaker than expected end market demand, primarily for its DRAM products. As a result, the preliminary financial results for the December quarter are as follows:
- Revenue expected to be in the range of $65.5 to $67.0 million compared to previous guidance of $68 to $72 million as provided on October 27, 2010.
- Net income expected to be in the range of $0.25 to $0.30 per fully diluted share compared to previous guidance of $0.30 to $0.36 per share.
"We previously expected revenue in the December quarter to decline sequentially as some of our end markets are experiencing an inventory correction. However, end market demand for DRAM, particularly in the consumer electronics markets in Asia, has been slightly weaker than we anticipated," said Scott Howarth, President and CEO. "We believe that this inventory correction is nearly complete."
